Eleanour Rohde was a well-known gardener and garden historian with a passion for herbs and herb gardens. In this 1922 book, Rohde provides readers with a complete, yet concise, guide to herbs--from creating an herb garden to using the herbs in various recipes including teas, syrups, conserves, pies, wines, waters, and perfumes. As well as illustrations of historic herbal knot gardens, the volume also contains interesting bits of herbal lore from throughout the ages. The work concludes with a chronological listing of key herbal texts from the fifteenth through the twentieth century.
